This chapter was first printed in Japanese in the 07/2015 issue of V Jump, released on May 21, 2015, and in English in the 05/25/2015 issue of Weekly Shonen Jump.


Astral fights Yuma with no mercy, constantly swarming his field with "Numbers" with the effect of the "King of Numbers", "Utopia Kaiser". Faced by this ordeal, Yuma shows Astral how much's he's grown with their past Duels.

Featured Duel: Yuma Tsukumo vs. Astral

Duel continues from the previous Rank.

Turn 4: Astral
Astral activates the effect of "No. 93: Utopia Kaiser", Special Summoning "No. 40: Gimmick Puppet of Strings" (3000/2000), "No. 66: Master Key Beetle" (2500/800), "No. 6: Chronomaly Atlandis" (2600/3000) and "No. 9: Dyson Sphere" (2800/3000) from his Extra Deck with their effects negated by detaching 1 Xyz Material (4 → 3). Next, Astral activates "Numbers Exist", reducing the ATK of "Atlandis" to zero and increasing the ATK of "Strings" by the amount of ATK "Atlandis" lost (ATK 3000 → 5600). He attacks "No. S39: Utopia the Lightning" with "Strings", but Yuma activates his face-down "Ghost of a Grudge", reducing the ATK of "Strings" to zero since Astral has 8 monsters in his Graveyard. "Utopia the Lightning" destroys "Strings", but the effect of "Utopia Kaiser" reduces the damage to Astral to zero. During the End Phase, the last effect of "Utopia Kaiser" activates; since one of Astral's "Numbers" was destroyed, he destroys Yuma's "Utopia the Lightning". Also, the effect of "Numbers Exist" wears off, returning the ATK of "Atlandis" to 2600.

Turn 5: Yuma
Since there are 2 or more monsters in Yuma's Graveyard, Yuma Normal Summons "Gagaga Head" (2100/2000) with no tributes. The effect of "Gagaga Head" then activates, Special Summoning "Gagaga Magician" (1500/1000) and "Gagaga Girl" (1000/800) from Yuma's Graveyard. Yuma then uses the effect of "Gagaga Head" to Xyz Summon "No. 39: Utopia" (2500/2000) from his Graveyard using "Head", "Magician" and "Girl" as Xyz Materials. Since Yuma has Xyz Summoned using only "Gagaga" monsters as Xyz Materials, the effect of "Gagaga Girl" activates, reducing the ATK of "Atlandis" to zero; the last effect of "Gagaga Head" activates as well, allowing Yuma to draw 3 cards, since he's used three "Gagaga" monsters as Xyz Materials. Yuma activates "Hope Buster", destroying "Atlandis". Next, he activates "Blustering Winds", increasing the ATK and DEF of "Utopia" by 1000 until the next turn (ATK 2500 → 3500). "Utopia" attacks and destroys "Dyson Sphere", with the effect of "Utopia Kaiser" reducing the damage to Astral to zero. Yuma Sets 2 cards.

Turn 6: Astral
Astral activates the effect of "Utopia Kaiser" to Special Summon three "Numbers" from his Extra Deck; but Yuma activates his face-down "Tin Balloons", which would Special Summon three "Tin Balloon Tokens" to Astral's remaining Monster Card Zones. Astral activates "Spirit Foresight", allowing Yuma to Special Summon only one "Tin Balloon Token" instead, and drawing 2 cards, as two of Yuma's Special Summons were negated. The effect of "Utopia Kaiser" resolves, Special Summoning two "Numbers": "No. 46: Dragluon" (3000/3000) and "No. 61: Volcasaurus" (2500/1000). Next, Astral activates "Battle Purification", returning the ATK of "Utopia" to normal (ATK 3500 → 2500). Yuma activates "Rival Crush", forcing Astral to attack with the monsters he controls with the highest ATK in order. He attacks "Utopia" with "Dragluon", "Volcasaurus" and "Key Beetle", but Yuma activates the effect of "Utopia" three times, detaching all of its Xyz Materials to negate the three attacks. Next, he attacks and destroys "Utopia" with "Utopia Kaiser", with the latter's effect preventing its own destruction. Astral Sets a card.

Turn 7: Yuma
Yuma activates "Endless Bond", Special Summoning "Utopia" back from his Graveyard while increasing its ATK by the ATK of all "Utopia" monsters in his Graveyard (ATK 7501).

Duel continues in the next Rank.
